Exercising always felt like a chore. I could never work out why I didn’t get excited about it like some people, my tactics to avoid it were pretty impressive. Now I finally get it, you just have to find out what makes you tick. I was first introduced to Pilates by an Osteopath, after having a few back problems - a perk of my job. It came highly recommended and seemed like a good start, especially if it was going to help heal my back and stop it recurring. But now the list is endless, it keeps you fit and puts your body in great shape, improves posture, muscle tone, balance, joint mobility, developing whole body and core strength. It’s also a big stress reliever, I call it my 'head shop'!
Even after a hard week at work, when any other exercise would be a utterly unappealing, I still want to go, mainly because I’m mostly horizontal!
